The former model turned actor Tyrese Gibson may be getting a role of a lifetime for his next feature film project. Recently, the 29-year-old revealed that he is eyeing to land an iconic character made famous by Mr. T back in the '80s. That means that the "Transformers" actor may portray the tough B.A. Baracus in the future "The A-Team" movie.

Talking to CHUD, the actor confessed that nothing is certain yet. The script of the John Singleton-directed movie is still under work and the decision of him joining the project still depends on his schedule. Despite the uncertainty, the co-star of Paul Walker and Eva Mendes in "2 Fast 2 Furious" expressed his excitement stating that he is ready to bring the character to the 21st Century which means B.A. could lose his gold jewelries and as for B.A.'s signature mohawk, he is still putting it for speculations.

The movie version of the hit '80s action adventure television series about a group of former United States Army Special Forces who works as mercenary and at the same time avoids capture due to a crime they didn't commit will be scripted by Jayson Rothwell and "Tomorrow Never Dies" scribbler Bruce Feirstein. It is also rumored to have Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Brendan Fraser as some of its stars.
